CONVERSATIONS WITH REMARKABLE MINDS

 

The new economic hit men  and the new sophistication of economic aggression

For many years, primarily through the 1970s and 1980s, John Perkins was an economic hit man (EHM), a job to convince leaders of developing nations to accept economic conditions that benefit US private and government interests. He was a direct participant or witness to such dramatic modern events as the Saudi Arabian Money Laundering scandal, the fall of the Shah of Iran, the assassinations of Eucador’s and Panama’s  democratically elected presidents, and other government and corporate intrigues. John was a chief economist for a large international consulting firm advising the World Bank and IMF, the UN, Fortune 500 companies and many national governments. Since leaving his covert activities, John been a champion of indigenous spiritual cultures and environmental movements through his non profit projects Dream Change -- which has hosted educational events to help raise consciousness and inspire more sustainable ways of living --  and the Pachamama Alliance. After 911, John broke his silence with the publication of his international best seller that has just been fully revised and published as “The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man”, to explain that rather than a corrupt specialized activity among select consulting and international construction firms in the past, the system of economic hit men has rather become more sophisticated, more devious, and more widespread, even through the halls of government, and is now intentionally bankrupting the US as it has done in the past with developing nations.

I am going to be focusing on what to do when disaster strikes PART 2. 

00:0000:00

I am going to be focusing on what to do when disaster strikes. We just had the worst flooding in American History in Texas and Louisiana. 
We had the worst storm in a long time in Florida, leaving 6.1 million Floridians without power. 
How do you survive that?
It is going to happen elsewhere. Montana has the worst fire in the State’s history... Idaho, Oregon, Washington State and California are on fire. We have natural disasters everywhere.  Yet, we are completely unprepared. 
My entire show tonight will be addressing this, the future, the places we can live, the places we shouldn’t live, and what is going to happen to the value of real-estate, our homes, our apartments, condominiums in the places that are most likely to suffer continuing environmental disasters.
